International technology companies & intellectual property
Protecting your most valuable asset in today's connected world
The global marketplace of today is more interconnected and competitive than ever before, and with this rise the value of intellectual property is taking center stage. Intellectual property is generally the most valuable asset held by technology companies and in fact, in many businesses across all sectors of the economy. IP accounts for an average of over 80 percent of a company value. With this in mind, entrepreneurs are learning the importance of protecting and enforcing their intellectual property in order to ensure the success of their business ventures.
